October 8th, 2021

In honor of Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month, we asked one of our patients to share her and her husband's journey through fertility struggles, multiple rounds of IUI, how they coped with the heartbreak of losing a pregnancy and where they are now.  Note: This story includes mentions of pregnancy loss (miscarriage) that may be difficult for some to read.
